Lee Friedlander: Apples and Olives

Lee Friedlander’s book, Apples and Olives, is a tribute to his long love of visual complexity. Photographs of apple trees in New York State and olive trees in France, Italy and Spain from 1997–2004, make up the body of this series of natural landscapes. Throughout the seasons, Friedlander is able to capture striking compositions that seem to be shot from just inside the reach of a tree’s furthest twigs, leaving the expanding, branching limbs to fill the frame.
